Ezna (Egyptian-Arabic: ???? IPA: Ancient Egyptians: ywny. ton or t?-snt;Coptic: ??? Sn? from t?-snt;Koine Greek: ????????? Latópolis or ????? ????? (Pólis Lát?n) or ?????? (Latt?n);Latin: Lato, is a place of Egypt. Situated on the western shore of the Nile, about 55 km southwards of Luxor. In former times the capital was part of the Qena province, but on 9.12.2009 it was integrated into the new Luxor province.
Latopolis is named in honour of the Nile bass, the late Nileoticus, the biggest of the 52 Nile inhabiting species which was abundantly present in these parts of the Nile in antiquity, and which in sculpture occurs among the symbol of the Neith divine, which the Greeks called Pallas Athens, encircled by an elliptical sign or ring pointing to majesty or deity.
12 ] Saint Lates Liloticus was entombed in a graveyard just outside the city. A further temple from the same time has been found in Kom Mer, about 12 km southwards, but cannot be dug out because a contemporary settlement has been over it. Euergetes Ptolemy III, the conservator of so many Upper Egyptian monasteries, was a patron of Latopolis, and he is portrayed on the temple wall, followed by a gentle Leo, and in the act of defeating the chieftains of his foes.
Though the size of the remains is striking, their statues and hieroglyphs bear witness to the demise of Egypt's work. The Romans seem to have even demolished the cellars of the former temple of Egypt before they erected their own building. There is no longer the ceremony path that probably connected the wharf with the temple.
In the graveyard just westwards of the city where the Spätniloticus was laid to rest, there are also graves of humans from the Middle Kingdom until the later years. There are two barricade decks spanning the Nile at this point: one by the British in 1906 and the "Electricity Bridge" from the nineties. In particular, Nile boats carrying passengers from Luxor to Aswan 155 km upriver can be detained for long periods while ships move through the sluices.
Esna's two most important attractions are the bustling, tourist-oriented square that surrounds some roads that lead from the gorniche into the interior. And the other is the temple of Esna. Situated about 200 metres from the riverbank and about 9 metres below road surface, the temple was only partly dug up.
